Description

Show me more

This application is designed to work with the eBook reader Aldiko. It allows you to sync your books and bookmarks across your devices using your Dropbox account.
** Note **

The app requires a rooted device to work with Aldiko v2.2.0+. This is because Aldiko no longer allows other apps access to its database.

** Note **

If you have an issue with the app, please use the in-app "Report Issue" feature, so I can address it as quickly as possible.

** Before complaining about the sync frequency in the Pro version, please read the entry about it in the FAQ here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1253576 **

Thanks!
